Well for me I think it is just a normal deep fried food in sticks although I must say the batter is rather crispy. If you are not sure what to eat just go for the set meal which consist of 8 - 15 types of difference fried meat, yam, prawns, etc. The set came with a bowl of braised... More

Started queuing before the shop open at 11 a.m. I was shocked to see the queue already starting to form at 10.30am. Once in, we just started ordering and food was served fast. NO 2 DIPPING on the sauce..delicious food.

The skewers we chose were all great... a tip is to skip the set and just choose what you like. Chicken meatballs, gizzard, octopus, squid tentacles, quails eggs, beef etc... everything we ordered was... More

The restaurant is quite famous for kushikatsu and big head figure of the owner at the entrance. We ordered the chef's recommendation. Though freshly deep fried, the taste did not live up to their reputation. Still a good experience but i simply prefer tonkatsu.

First visit, get recommendation from hotel people, I think the food is really nice. I like the pork katsura and the one with prawn. Overall it's really tasty. But it's a long que to get in. But it's worth to try

Located in one of the most crowded locations of Osaka, It is a must go restaurant. I had to wait for 10 minutes before going in, but if you dont wait in Japan, it means it is not a good place. They will explain about the usage of the sauce, which you have to use once for each kushikatsu. I... More
